.ee zone file publicly available as of 5 July
Publishing the zone file will contribute to the development of the internet in Estonia, enable the analysis of the data, and allow its use in research, studies and business, plus enable the archiving of websites of greater importance. For example, banks will have better opportunities for monitoring potential phishing attempts or registrations made to take advantage of spelling errors. Smart domain name generators and DNS-based firewalls are also examples of services where the publishing of the zone file will contribute to development.
There is no confidential information in the zone file, and it is also no longer possible to find personal data relating to the domains in the zone file from the public domain search database WHOIS. The zone file is not an exhaustive list of .ee domains. If the domain has been registered without name server records, or such records have been removed from the existing domain, it is not included in the zone file. If you have any questions about the adding or removing of name servers, please turn to your registrar or service provider. Domains in suspension or deletion proceedings are also not included in the file.

From May 16, we will start auctions of place names and numerical domains that have been reserved until now. Domain names are auctioned in groups in the classic open English auction format. Auctions for reserved domains start every day at 12:00 and last 24 hours until the following noon. In the future, we will publish the domains that will be auctioned at least 30 days in advance.
We are looking for an experienced Ruby software engineer to push our open-source domain registry solution to a new level and join our small ambitious team.
We develop and manage Estonian top level domain .ee, its registry and DNS system. Most of the software we use is developed in house.
